Expand Your Dive Horizons
The PADI Deep Diver specialty course allows you to explore underwater environments that are beyond the typical recreational diving limits of 18-30 meters.
Becoming a PADI Deep Diver allows you to access a much wider range of dive sites, and explore the deeper realms of some dive sites you may already have explored at a shallower depth.
Example of dive sites around Koh Tao where we can dive below 30 metres include Chumphon Pinnacle and Sail Rock, both boasting marine life, and geological features that are not accessible to less experienced divers.
Improved Diver Skills and Knowledge
Our PADI Deep Diver specialty training focuses on the specialized training and knowledge needed for deep diving techniques, which will allow you to plan and execute dives below 30metres.
This includes learning about gas management at depth and navigating in poor visibility. You will also learn about nitrogen narcosis and the challenges associated with diving at greater depths.
There are additional considerations and risks associated with Deep diving and the PADI Deep Diver specialty course addresses these.
Our specialty training course ensures you become a better equipped scuba diver, able to recognize and mitigate any risks at depth, which will make you a safer, more competent and better equipped diver overall.
Gain and Dive with Confidence
Deep diving can be somewhat intimidating for some divers. The PADI Deep Diver course helps build confidence in your abilities and decision-making skills underwater.
As you gain deep diving experience during the Deep Diver training, you will start to feel much more confident, comfortable and capable in more challenging diving situations.
After completing the course, you will be certified to dive to depths of up to 40 meters opening up even more opportunities for exciting and challenging dives.
